Ubaldo Jimenez Drips with Awesomeness
Right-handed, 6 foot 4 inches, 210 pounds, 26 years old and currently owns a 10-1 record this season with a 0.78 ERA and 0.90 WHIP. Those numbers aren't just great, they're out of this world and dripping with awesomeness. Ubaldo Jimenez leap-frogged his way from decent starting pitcher to top of the heap so far in 2010. His dominance has not been matched by many in the last few decades and it's scary to think just how his stats will look come season's end if he continues at even remotely to this pace. He's allowed only 7 earned runs in 80.1 innings, while some starters have surrendered more than that in a single outing. He's easily the early favorite for the NL Cy Young and possibly MVP too.
